Day 364

The great photographer Walker Evans once said “Stare. Pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.” I think lately I’ve taking his advice too much to heart and have developed a fascination for looking into people’s houses as I’m walking by to see what they’re watching on tv. A habit made substantially easier by the Sydney heat and people having their doors open! And a practice made weirder by the fact that so many people are watching the same thing that you were, on this occasion the tennis.

Anyway I thought it would be appropriate to include one of these shots for the second last Project 365 entry as a look back on my photos through the year reveal a number of ‘stalker’ type images. One reason for this was my desire to become better at not being seen while I’m taking photos. The advantages of this in a commercial sense are the resulting ‘natural’ look images which really show in a positive light those people who simply freeze up in front of a camera.
